U.K.: Iran Blocked Government Website

Posted by Ram Kumar Shrestha on December 22, 2011

LONDON — Iran has blocked access to a British government website aimed at Iranian audiences in a new act of aggression against the U.K., Britain’s Foreign Secretary said Thursday.

William Hague claimed that the website – the online presence of Britain’s now shuttered embassy in Tehran – had been deliberately targeted by the Iranian regime.

The decision to disrupt access to the site follows the violent storming of Britain’s embassy by demonstrators last month, when a mob trashed rooms, damaged furniture, scrawled graffiti and tore up a portrait of Queen Victoria, as staff took shelter.

Hague pulled British diplomats out of Iran for their own safety and made the rare decision to expel all Iranian diplomats from U.K. soil.

The British website contained information for Iranian hoping to visit Britain and details on U.K. government policies. Those trying to access the pages are now directed to a list of Iranian government approved websites, including Iran’s English-language Press TV.
